Swedish State Practice 2004–5: United Nations Targeted Sanctions FREDRIK STENHAMMAR* United Nations targeted sanctions are international coercive measures ordered by the UN Security Council under Chapter VII of the UN Charter for the main- tenance of international peace and security. They are intended to focus pressure on individuals in positions of power or influence while sparing civilian popu- lations. As Chapter VII measures, targeted sanctions are binding on all UN member states. The category includes notably asset freezes and travel bans. Typically, the measures are directed against individuals by way of a blacklist, compiled by a Sanctions Committee appointed by the Security Council to man- age the sanctions regime in question. 1 Exemptions may be granted on human- itarian grounds, e.g. for living expenses.
